John William Waterhouse (6 aprilie 1849 – 10 februarie 1917) a fost un  pictor englez pre-rafaelit cunoscut mai mult pentru picturile cu personaje feminine din mitologie si literatura. A apartinut ultimei perioade a miscarii pre-rafaelite. S-a nascut in Roma din parinti pictori, William si Isabela Waterhouse, iar la varsta de cinci ani s-a mutat cu familia la South Kensington, langa noul muzeu Victoria si Albert Museum. A studiat pictura sub indrumarea tatalui sau, apoi a intrat la scoala Royal Academy in 1870. Primele lui lucrari au fost teme clasice in spiritul lui Alma-Tadema si Frederic Leighton, si au fost expuse la Royal Academy, la Society of British Artists si la  Dudley Gallery. In 1874, la varsta de 25 de ani, Waterhouse a inscris  alegoria clasica "Sleep and His Half-Brother Death" la Expozitia de vara de la Royal Academy. Pictura a fost foarte bine primita, apoi a continuat sa expuna la academie aproape in fiecare an pana la moartea lui in 1917. In 1883 s-a casatorit cu Esther Kenworthy, fiica unui profesor de arta de la Ealing. Au avut doi copii, insa ambii au murit de mici. In 1895 Waterhouse a fost ales academician. A predat la St. John's Wood Art School, s-a alaturat Clubului  St John's Wood Arts Club si a facut parte din consiliul Royal Academy. Una dintre cele mai cunoscute picturi ale lui Waterhouse este "The Lady of Shalott". Alt subiect favorit a lui Waterhouse a fot Ophelia.Waterhouse nu a putut termina seriile de picturi cu Ophelia deoarece a fost foarte bolnav de cancer din 1915. A murit doi ani mai tarziu si a fost inmormantat la Kensal Green Cemetery din Londra.
